Chris Paul and the Oklahoma City Thunder were not expected to have much of a chance to make the postseason last year. After an impressive season from the entire team and excellent leadership shown by Paul, the Thunder not only made the playoffs, but also pushed the Houston Rockets to seven games.
Now, entering the NBA offseason, the Thunder are expected to end up trading Paul. They will be looking for a good return, but a deal is expected to be found.
During the 2019-20 NBA season with the Thunder, Paul ended up averaging 17.6 points per game to go along with 6.7 assists and 5.0 rebounds. He shot 48.9 percent from the floor overall and knocked down 36.5 percent of his three-point attempts. Those numbers show why Paul is highly sought after in trade talks.
Even at 35 years old, Paul is an elite NBA point guard. Teams like the Milwaukee Bucks, New York Knicks, and Los Angeles Lakers have been rumored to have interest.
All of that being said, let’s take a look at one trade package that would land Chris Paul in a trade from each of the star’s preferred landing spots.
